I see now they are charging £18 to do a search.

We charge £18 for up to one hours searching – please make cheques payable to ‘Framfield PCC’ with your enquiry. http://www.framfieldchurch.org.uk/history.html
This is cheap, the Parochial Fee from the 1st January 2018 is £29 for up to one hour, and each subsequent hour or part of an hour. Prescribed by the Parochial Fees Order 2014 (a Statutory Instrument) http://www.rootschat.com/links/01lbq/

Thank you every one for you help and suggestions, I think I will just have to assume that Jeremiah is in the churchyard somewhere. Just as a footnote, I was told by someone in Framfield 10 years ago that there was a possibility that Croxted Lane Yard was somewhere in High Cross but I was also warned not to go looking around there as it belonged to Nicholas van Hoogstraten the notorious gangster. Needless to say I took his advice and never followed it up.

On old maps, both High Cross and Crockstead appear to be large farms/estates. Logically I would expect that Croxted Lane would be near, or lead to, Croxted.

Looking at the old maps there is a "road" from Palehouse Common south to Crockstead. I wonder if this might be Croxted Lane? It would explain why Palehouse Common was also given as his abode. The "road" today:

Unfortunately the signposts are illegible.
Locals living near the lane might be able to help you. A snail mail letter (with a reply paid envelope) to any of "The Householder/s" living near the lane may yield some results.

It doesn't seem that Croxted Lane Yard existed .... it is not on any of the transcripts found on any sites.  :-\

 Only familyhistoryonline had YARD in their transcript.
I think I have knocked on most of the doors down Pale House Common, that's where someone said it maybe in High Cross.

In that case I would try to seek out a local history group .. or a REALLY old local resident.  :)

Hi

He committed suicide?

Therefore he may not be in/on the church yard/property?

He may be in an unrecorded, unconsecrated area.
"The other side of the cemetery wall?"

Thanks Ray but according to Pheno the burial is recorded at St. Thomas with Croxted Lane supplied as other info but no one I have spoken to knows where Croxted Lane was.
